I am looking forward to completing your training. In time, you will call me... Master.
I am currently working on eliminating
my job... sort of. I am hard at work on a customer training manual, to
help everyone out there who ever once said, "I can't find anything in
the documentation", or, "The documentation... <insert derogatory
It's not an easy thing to write a training manual
on a topic you already know. Do I repeat to myself each step as I code
new applications? Of course not; some things are just ingrained into
head as "the way to do things", like adding the ImageCache folder to a
WebApplication and putting the AppSettings key into the Web.Config.
hard part of writing a manual is what tone to use. Do I assume basic
programming techniques? Do I write a version for C# and one for
VB.Net? Do I include code snippets, or write full-blown applications
for each topic (I'm choosing the latter on that one -- I can always add
the snippets later on). Who is my general audience?
DotImage 6.0c release newsletter, Marketing Dude Eric released a
training survey to get feedback from everyone. Basic questions were
included -- how many days do you think it should take, would you travel or want the
trainer to travel to you, et cetera. There is even a chance to win a
$50 Amazon gift certificate by completing the survey.

Additionally, we have an email if you have questions, opinions, or suggestions about training.
So, if this manual is successful, you won't need me anymore. And I can focus on my own training to become a cage fighter.
